Points record equalled

Jordi Clos

With the win in Villarreal, Barca have set a new club record of 90 points in a 20 team league, equalling the 1996/97 total, when there were 22 teams in La Liga, and there’s still three games to go!

The win didn’t just consolidate Barca’s position at the top of the table, it also set a new club record of 90 points in a season. The points have come after just 35 games, 28 wins, six draws and just the one defeat and equal the total Bobby Robson’s team took from 42 games in the 1996/97 season.

Three more than last year

Two off La Liga record

The record points total in La Liga was achieved by Fabio Capello’s Madrid in that 96/97 season, who took 92 points. Barca have games against Tenerife, Seville and Valladolid to take the three points they need to beat that.
